This review is from: Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces (Paperback)
As a enthusiastic yet frustrated weekend gardener, I am always searching for a book to inspire me. I have found it! Garden Up! is not only aesthetically beautiful, but is packed with page after page of creative and visually wonderful ideas that I can actually implement myself. Having a sad and lonely side yard that I am embarresed to have people see, the "Junkyard to Garden Tour Standout" has made it possible for me to see the future and envision what a lovely side yard I can actually have. The planting ideas and garden accents that the authors point out in all of the chapters are things I see in other peoples yards, but never know how to actually implement. The section on layering in Skinny Spaces was particularly wonderful. I love the look of layering that I always see but never know how to achieve it in my skinny beds. The chapter on Plant Picks is a real treasure. Other gardening books have way too many choices - Garden Up! presents the Greatest Hits of the plant world for every situation and type of garden. This is a book I know I will go back to again and again for ideas, inspiration and enjoyment. I enthusiastically recommend Garden Up! for both the amateur and professional gardener alike!
